What to Look For in an Elder at Your Church?

Church Matters:

IV. We Are Looking for Men Who Are Already Recognized as “Elderly”

– We want men who are known, because they attend.

– We want men who are known as a person of love.

– We want men who are known as a person of wisdom and knowledge and confidence

– Discipling others, serving faithfully.

– Putting the church’s interests above his own.

– All this makes you a center of gravity in the church. Not a loyal opposition center-of-gravity, but a person whom the people of this church are already gravitating to as a pastoral figure.

– We want to say, “How could we not recognize this person as an elder?”
